. >> and the white house certainly going to push. the president is going to talk about guns in his state of the union address next month. and my piece lays out as he does that, he can call for certain gun safety things. there's a lot that polls well, a lot that could arguably help deal with various problems. but the white house knows based on the polling that the president's going to have to talk about it as part of a balanced approach and cliche again today. and that he's going to have to explain in it a way that it doesn't seem like he's tramibling on the 2nd amendment. >> yeah. i actually agree with that, james. i think go ahead with gun control, go ahead with the things that make sense but in a way that's respectful. kudos for number two on the list, only use the word rape in condemnation. i might go stronger. not sure they're trusted to use the word at all. don't say it. maybe next year you can say it in condemnation. the one to get you to weigh in on, you said stop being the party of the rich which i agree with but not so much a perception problem of them. their economic policy is based on the

from my story. before you begin an aspirin regimen. we are gathered here today to celebrate the union of tim and laura. it's amazing how appreciative people are when you tell them they could save a lot of money on their car insurance by switching to geico...they may even make you their best man. may i have the rings please? ah, helzberg diamonds. nice choice, mate. ...and now in the presence of these guests we join this loving couple. oh dear... geico. 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance. >>> just about a minute from now in newtown, connecticut and across the country people will mark a moment of silence to honor the 20 students and six adults killed at sandy hook elementary school. connecticut governor daniel malloy called for a moment of silence at 9:30 a.m. eastern time exactly one week after the horror began to untold in newtown. the church bells in newtown will toll 26 times. tens of thousands of churches say they also plan to ring their bells at 9:30 this morning. more than a dozen governors are calling for moments of silence in their own states. president obam

to push in that second four years. >> i have to go back to work on my state of the union speech. and i worked on it until pretty late last night. but i want to say one thing to the american people, i wanted you to listen to me. i'm going say this again. i did not have sexual relations with that woman. ms. lewinsky. >> though ronald reagan pushed through a tax overhaul in his second term he also became embroiled in the iran-contra affair. >> a few months ago i told the american people i did not trade arms for hostages. my heart and my best intentions still tell me that's true, but the facts and the evidence tell me it is not. >> there is a bright side, if lincoln had not had a second term he would not have won the civil war. reagan's place in history was cemented by the beginnings of the end of the cold war, and without a second term, fdr would be known as the president who didn't end the great depression. still second terms don't last four years. they're shorter than that. how long will obama have? is he aware that a second term domestically only lasts about a year to 18 months? politi

sections, an area where romney did well overall but saw his margin slip. union county, iowa. bush won by seven. obama here. dauphin county, pennsylvania. juneau county, wisconsin. another very white area obama flips it by seven points. so why did we see this shift in the political middle and should this be the real source of concern for republicans going forward? right now let's bring in the bhaen hind patchwork nation. he is at the desk. it was about the middle. there was this mythology that somehow mitt romney won the middle because he won independents. >> right. >> it is completely clear it goes not the case. >> i think that is why it is important to go into these communities we used because of the way i like to think of the middle is not just independents because it is self-described. i like talking about places because places are what they are. they can't describe themselves. the numbers describe them to you. these places are moderate places. >> one thing and you want to look at this more and you'd like to lay over some census data when you get into this. i want to go to the boom

of this if there is no deal. he has the bully pulpit in january like nobody's business. inaugural, state of the union. but if he doesn't get a deal he's not going to get a lot done in 2013 and he'd rather get something done in 2013 and get a deal even if it is a little painful. right? >> yeah, but they could wait. right? one of the first lessons i learned when i came to this town is no deal is done before it's due. we're now at the point where things have to get done. they always look darkest before the done. >> or darkest before it goes really black. >> that's mccain's line. >> so i haven't lost all hope but i do think in the white house from a policy perspective you can go over this cliff and you do look up and you say, we got most of what we want, time to restructure the fiscal picture for the united states. >> this is where i'm scratching my head a little bit. i don't know how boehner can convince some of these conservatives to make a vote on something that may not become law, it is a plan b. if he cuts a deal with the white house, there's a whole bunch more of these guys that don't have to vote

with a specific set of policies in time for the state of the union address next month. today, biden meets with law enforcement leaders from around the country. among the possibilities that the president has already floated for the task force, reinstating the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004. banning high capacity clips or magazines which can hold dozens of bullets and closing the so-called gun show loophole which allows private gun sales without a background check. getting a permanent director confirmed at the alcohol tobacco and firearms, that's the nation's primary gun law enforcer. it's not had a director confirmed in 66 years. it's actually never had a confirmed director. the senate changed the law and nra lobbied to force the atf to become a senate confirmation, therefore guaranteeing it could never really be confirmed. nra has successfully been able to block that. it's always had acting directors. also the president called for a way to make it easier to access mental health services. and then, of course, you did talk about changing the country's culture when it comes to violence. but
